Psalm 34:8 (NIV)
“Taste and see that the Lord is good…”
Isaiah 61:3 (NIV)
"…to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.”
2. Jesus doesn’t remodel, He does new construction.
2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV)
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come!”
3. If you are not willing to be humble and flexible, your life will get messy.
Hebrews 3:7-9 (NIV)
“So, as the Holy Spirit says: ‘Today, if you hear his voice, do not harden your hearts as you did in the rebellion, during the time of testing in the desert, where your fathers tested and tried me and for forty years saw what I did.’”
